Leo Messi wanted to STAY in Barcelona, he had an agreement to stay at Barça and we wanted Leo to stay. I want to thank Leo’s camp and all people involved in the negotiations. Unfortunately, because of La Liga rules, we can’t proceed. 

Negotiations with Leo Messi have ENDED. We can’t register Messi because of La Liga rules, they’re not flexible with us on salary limit. We had an agreement with Leo but we can’t register him. Leo will now look at OTHER OPTIONS, we had this totally clear deadline”. 
“Financial numbers and losses are worse than expected. Our salary mass is not leaving any margin. Financial Fair Play is also blocking us. I can’t make a decision that could destroy the club, Barça is the most important thing”. 
“We can’t register the contract of Leo Messi that was agreed because of Financial Fair Play rules. Unfortunately, we have received an inheritance in which we have no margin with the salary current situation”. 
“Chances to change the situation and re-sign Messi? I don’t want to give fake hopes. We had a deadline because La Liga is starting soon… now Messi can look at other options”. 
“I’m sad but we did everything to keep Leo and he was prepared to stay at Barcelona, it was agreed. A new era starts now without Lionel Messi, we’ll be thankful to Leo”. 
“Leo Messi is NOT happy. He wanted to STAY in Barcelona, as we wanted to keep Messi here. But we can’t change the reality now, I wish Leo the best wherever he will go as NEXT CLUB”
“We had an agreement with Messi to sign a five-year contract but paying him two years salary. Leo agreed on the contract, it was ACCEPTED. We were convinced it was a good agreement for Financial Fair Play but… it wasn’t allowed by La Liga”. 
“We can’t sell fake hopes to our fans. We have to move on. Barcelona will be above everything”.
